During your visa application, you need to pay an immigration fee and an insurance fee. Furthermore, as part of the visa application, you need to prove your financial means for living expenses and tuition fee (exchange students do not pay a tuition fee).
Immigration fee (IND fee)
Student Admissions does not charge you for the assistance in applying for your visa. However, the IND does charge a processing fee. The application for the residence permit will cost 210 euros*. This is called the immigration fee. You will pay this immigration fee to Student Admissions and we will then transfer it to the IND (the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service).
Please note: Once we have sent your application to the IND it is not possible to receive a refund if you decide to cancel your application.
Some scholarships and grants cover the immigration fee. Also citizens from Israel and San Marino do not have to pay the immigration fee due to a special agreement between the governments. If one of these situations is the case for you, you will not have to pay the immigration fee yourself.
With the visa application Radboud University will become your referent and is therefore obliged to make sure you are sufficiently insured. Therefore it is mandatory to have the Aon Complete+ insurance when you will get a visa through Radboud University. The insurance fee costs 58 euros* a month. During your visa application, you will pay this amount multiplied by the number of months you expect to study in the Netherlands (with a maximum of twelve months). Student Admissions will take care of your insurance for one year. It is possible to extend this insurance for students that will study for more than one year. More info can be found here.
To study in the Netherlands with a Dutch residence permit you have to prove enough financial means. Financial means consist of tuition fee and living expenses. For each month of residence in the Netherlands, you will need at least 960 euros* for living expenses. Therefore, your required living expenses depend on the length of your stay in the Netherlands. The table below shows the amount of financial means you need to prove on behalf of the IND. During the visa application process you will be informed about the tuition fee amount.
As financial statements may not be older than three months at the time of filing the visa application with the IND, Student Admissions advises you not to start collecting these documents in a too early stage. More detailed information will be sent to you by email after Student Admissions has started your visa process in Osiris.
